Although you might be more used to Australia Post delivering your packages, they have a set of respectable 30-day prepaid phone plans, too.
Not only are its plans affordable, they come packed with extra features too. Australia Post has data banking, data sharing between plans on the same account, and data gifting to other Australia Post customers.

Australia Post has a number of extra features on its mobile plans, mostly revolving around data.
Up to 100GB of unused data will rollover to the next month when you recharge before your plan expires.
If you have multiple 30-day expiry plans on the same account, data is automatically pooled between them. This can be convenient for a family or if you have multiple devices.
You can gift data in 1GB blocks to other Australia Post mobile customers.
The most you can gift is 5GB per month on the 30-day plans, or 60GB over the year on the 365-day expiry option.
A couple of Australia Post's plans come with international call credit that you can use to make PAYG calls to any destination. This can be handy if you need just a little overseas calling credit.
For more coverage:
If coverage is an issue for you, check out ALDImobile which uses the Telstra 4G wholesale network, reaching 98.8% of the Australian population. It has a few plan extras, including data banking.
For big data:
If the 50GB on Australia Post's largest plan isn't enough, Circles.Life has up to 100GB for just $45 per month. It also runs on the Optus 4G network.
For a better long expiry:
Coles Mobile has one of the best 365-day expiry plans on the market: 120GB for $150, usually discounted to $119 for the first year.
